    I have always wanted to learn the sitar. I was considering buying one, but don't have the cash:( I would still love to learn it. it seems like a really cool instrument. Anyone else?

    Definitely the clavinet. That instrument rules. If i learned piano i would know how to play it but i love the sound of that on songs like Trampled Underfoot and Supersition. Such a funky sound.

    tabla. I need to get the ones I have here fixed. or sitar. or that bigger, lower pitched version of the sitar, used mainly for the early morning ragas. someday we can all have a big ol' indian jam session thing.

    or....bagpipes. bagpipes kick ass. then I get a kilt, and parade around town annoying people, and threatening them with a claymore.

    I would say drums. It was fun during the 2-3 months when my ex-drummer left his set in my garage.

    However, I need to work on my singing.
  9. Right now, cello. Not sure why.

    But my bassin' and singin' aren't good enough to allow me time to try another instrument.

    geez...there are so many.

    sitar(my friend is getting one, I can't wait to play on it)
    tablas(my friend has a pair...REALLLY fun)
    steel drum
    and singing.
    I could go on....really, any instrument fascinates me, and I always love playing around with them.
  12. It would be cool to learn tuba, but I'd rather become a better drummer.

    Piano, as much as I like bass it still a very limited instrument so it would be nice for songwriting and playing purposes to know how to play a instrument with more range and speed.

    Hmm. I think maybe I'll have to answer drums/percussion, for my "next" new instrument. It's the only rhythm section instrument I'm missing.

    Other than drums, the flute I think.

    I think that'd a nice little arsenal to have:

    Piano, Guitar, Bass, Drums, Trumpet, Sax, Flute, Voice

    I must say that when I was in my Beatles phase, I wanted to learn sitar too :) Even now, it'd be a nice instrument to have, but drums and flute are higher up.

    You're getting dangerously close to mentioning bloody Glen Gould again, aren't you? :D
